Ep. 215: Fantasy Co-ed Groups
Let's return to a classic AMAK thought experiment, painstakingly choosing idols to fit into a fantasy group! And this time we're doing mixed gender groups!! We both approached the assignment very differently, resulting in some last minute changes (Angelica gets to make 2 groups cause Shannon is bad at rules) Which of these groups would you want to see the most? Who would be in your fantasy group! See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Ep. 214: It Begins With Baby V.O.X
Today's Deep Dive is celebrating 25 years since the debut of Kpop's first ever girl group, Baby V.O.X. The girl group who on one hand, was greatly responsible for the creation of 'Hallyu', and on the other hand had more anti-fans than anyone else. What did they do? Exist as women of course. Hear all about the early member changes (including a member hiding a huge secret), concept experiments, wild hairstyles, violence over dating rumors and so much more!

Ep. 211: SMTOWN Summer Albums
Happy Summer! For this week's episode, we're taking a look at the 6 summer 'family' albums that SM Entertainment released between 2002-2009. Who was featured on these albums? What did the songs sound like? How much fun do you think they all had wrestling in the pool? Why haven't they done one of these albums for 13 years?!? All those questions and a lot of very cheesy summer music ahead!! See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Ep. 208: Third Generation; Kpop Going Global
Okay we're doing it! We're revisiting and updating an episode we did 4 years ago! Enough time has passed that it feels safe to put some brackets around what we consider 'the 3rd generation' of Kpop. Just as we did all those years ago in episodes 18 and 19, we will take a look at how music videos, concerts, fan engagement, concepts, scandals and more, differed from the generations before. What do you think of the 3rd Gen? See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Ep. 207: What's Your "One" Kpop Video
This week we posed a challenge for our Seasoned Fan Patreon Patrons, what is the "one" Kpop video for you? The single video you would show to a complete stranger who is asking you about Kpop. A Kpop 'elevator pitch' per se. We watched 14 different video submissions over on our Patreon, and then we came here to find out why each listener chose their one video, and then discuss the Kpop merits of each!

Ep. 206: What's In A Stage Name?
This week's episode is probably a topic we should have covered 190 episodes or so ago, but we're doing it now! It's time to talk about stage names! We studied stage names from a ton of random groups throughout all time to give us a good picture of where stage names come from, and the patterns and categories they often fall into. Then, we take a quiz to find out our Kpop stage names. What's your favorite stage name in Kpop? **This episode included an upsetting recording error resulting in maybe not the most amazing steady audio you've ever heard and we're really sorry please be nice.

Ep. 205: TWICE III Encore in LA
We got to see TWICE in a really big stadium with so many people!!! Listen to our tired and brain melted recap recorded the morning after that may be slightly jumbled, but we got the main point across. Which is that TWICE is really amazing and we're so happy we saw them. See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Ep. 204: Every Mirotic Cover We Could Find
This episode topic was silly and ill-advised but we did it anyway. For some reason we decided to watch 25 covers of the 2008 TVXQ! song "Mirotic" in a row. Let us tell you about them. Pray that we will get the song out of our heads eventually.

C'mon we saved you a seat in the time machine, let's keep with tradition and check out the Kpop scene 20 years ago. This week we're covering the first 6 months of 2002 and all the popular music releases we could find. We've got a lot of music that sounds super familiar in ways we can't place, and singers that um... struggle with live singing in a way we have yet to see in these episodes. As well as assorted news including lost pets, drug scandals, dating, rough injuries, and some very strange PR choices. Strap in for a long episode of laughs and watch along with our playlist here: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL-8Wdlv0O5P7oyQGJ6I4i1Astawz-4M4t See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

Ep. 197: Our NU'EST Love
Raise a glass and let's say farewell to NU'EST while simultaneously learning everything about them. That's right, today's episode is a bittersweet deep dive into NU'EST, recorded on, and in honor of, their official disbandment day. We've got 10 years of NU'EST to cover, from their beginnings as the first boy group at Pledis, to bringing Kpop to often skipped parts of the globe. And how a last ditch shot on a reality competition leads to Waiting, and finally making it to deserved acclaim. Tune in for some incredible bops and a lot of sadness that's all gotta end so soon. You did well NU'EST!!! See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
